In the book of Genesis, G-d tells Abraham to lead the Jewish people to the Land of Canaan to become their promised homeland and they would become the Chosen People for other nations to follow the laws given by G-d. In other words, the ancient Jewish territory of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) is only part of this proclaimed land for the Jewish people. Amongst some Orthodox Jewry today, they believe that it is for this reason that settlements cannot be dismantled. More specifically, the Biblical agreement (covanent) entails the region from the Mediterreanen Sea to the Euphrates River (Syria/Iraq today).
